Celebrate Earth Day!



Today is Earth Day.  This is a special day to celebrate the wonders of our natural world.  It’s a day to remember that we are stewards of this amazing planet, not simply residents.  Matthew and Lily, from my book Magical Matthew, understand the importance of this stewardship.  They take good care of their things, help clean up their neighborhood park, and support Earth Day activities such as Beach Clean Up days.  I hope everyone will follow their example.  Together we can make our world a little cleaner and a little healthier for all the plants and animals that breathe the same air we breathe and drink the same water.  Happy Earth Day!

  3. Penelope:
    GREAT IDEA on how to tie your book with Earth Day! :) For Earth Day this year, I took my two-year-old to a "bug hunt." It was so cute. :) At a park, she hunted for plastic bugs instead of plastic eggs like you do on Easter. I also love Earth Day because I know spring and warm weather are close! :)

    1. Hi Margo, thanks for your support. That sounds like a really fun activity, a "bug hunt." My soon-to-be 18 yr. old still enjoys the candy-filled egg hunt we do around the house -- anything for candy!
